So overall I found the whole experience to be fun because I love to be part of something, but the movie to be so-so... Finally, the movie seemed loooooooooooong. It lasted forever and ever. It was the longest two hour movie ever.

I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

Easily Meyer's most insane bit of over the top and giddily silly prose, the basic truth is not a heck of a lot happens here.

This penultimate "Twilight" film is the best in the series so far. It's languorous, romantic, moody, and, in the end, horrifying.

Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg continues her long tradition of scripting staggeringly banal, subtext-free dialogue and grasping at the profundity of her betters by quoting poetry in the prologues.

Color us stoked that a Twilight movie even strays into evil-fetus territory.

The last twenty minutes of Breaking Dawn are so harrowing that it's possible to forget that most of the acting is soap-operatic (the guy who plays Carlisle is aging to look like Liberace) and the dialogue from hunger.

The action sequences are ludicrous, the werewolves mostly just bounding, then bounding again, while the vampire trick of just moving ever so fast soon becomes just ever so tiresome.

Darker, sexier, sharper - a neat next step.

For a film that revolves around the needs of and desires of creatures who are slaves to their hunger for the red stuff, Breaking Dawn is bloodless.

It all goes wrong just when it should go right.

Melodrama reigns in this supernatural soap opera, even though author Stephanie Meyer's tale takes a decided turn toward the weird and violent.

There really is no polishing a Twilight movie, which by design will have to be both silly and terribly boring.

This latest Twilight is a freakish hybrid: part medical horror, part cheesy Victoria's Secret catalogue shoot.

This is a well-made film, though sometimes unintentionally funny.

There are a few reasons The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1 is probably the best of the Twilight films.

For those of us who are not Twilight fanatics, or even fans, or could not care somewhat less than less, the arrival of Part 1 is not cause for trumpets blaring. But I would imagine that even those who line up for this film will be somewhat let down.

By any normal standard, this is a terrible movie, with stilted dialogue and leaden pacing -- every 15 minutes or so, the action stops for a musical montage involving slow-motion handsomeness. But the Twilight saga stopped being normal a long time ago.

Here's hoping Breaking Dawn Part Two gives us more of what Part One provided in the final 30 minutes than what it forced viewers to endure to get there.

Some nice moments, but not enough of them.
